At the factory, or in your house?
The onsite voicing service I provide is about
making sure that the amplifier gives you exactly the sound you want in
your system. It is not about simply plugging the amp in and hooking it
up to your system. It goes beyond that to fine-tuning the amplifier's
operating parameters to ensure that the level of performance from the
amp matches that of your entire system. And we check to be sure that your
system is giving all it can. I know what these amplifiers should sound
like, and I want you to hear them at that ethereal level. And I know that
everyone has a different idea of what constitutes good sound, so I want
to make sure that these amps give you what you demand.
While most audiophiles have had
many years of experience installing components in their own system, I
have had many years of experience designing, building components which
I then had to make perform at their best under very difficult conditions
such as Consumer Electronics Shows. This experience gives me the capability
to pinpoint problem areas in the remaining audio system and make corrections
that are beyond that of most audiophiles.
However, I recognize
that not everyone can afford the onsite service, or might even be interested
in it. For that reason all WT XL amplifiers are available without
onsite voicing at a reduced price.
doesn't mean that custom-voicing is not available for customers who decline
personal delivery and setup: All WT amplifiers can be voiced at the factory
prior to shipping at no charge. I will be happy to discuss your sonic
needs and preferences and make an educated guess about what will work
for you. It can help to read the reviews, too. I'm usually able to get
it right the first time, but trying to describe sound with words is sometimes
Also, if at any time
you are not satisfied with the amplifier's "voice", you can
return it to the factory to have it tweaked. The first revoicing will
be performed at no charge except for your cost to ship the amp to me.
It usually only requires one revoice to trim the sound exactly to where
you want it. If more fine-tuning is desired, there will be a service fee
of $220 + shipping per adjustment.
